Resource Spotlight

This month we are highlighting newly published resources, all available in Discovery Place.  Quantities are limited, so order early!


Unshakable Hope: Building Our Lives on the Promises of God by Max Lucado.  Is what you’re anchored to stronger than what you’re going through?  Max Lucado offers encouraging, practical guidance for overcoming difficult circumstances and gaining inner peace, building resolve, and walking into a better future.  There are things that seem unsteady in this life. But when we belong to God, we can filter our problems through the promises of God. When we choose to be people of the promise, we choose to build our lives on the promises of God, not on the circumstances of life.  Includes DVD, study guide, and book. 12 sessions.






Cultures in Conflict: Paul Proclaims Jesus as Lord, Part 2 by Ray Vander Laan.  This is the sequel to A Clash of Kingdoms: Paul Proclaims Jesus as Lord, Part 1 from the very popular Faith Lessons series.  How do you live in a culture where the worldview conflicts with Christianity? Learn from Paul as he presents his beliefs to the most powerful court in Athens and settles among the Greco-Romans of Corinth, who valued wealth and class, worship of multiple gods, and decadent pleasure seeking above all else. Discover how to live in your own Athens or Corinth in a way that glorifies God. Filmed on location in Greece and Israel. Includes DVD and Discovery Guide. 5 sessions.





God’s Messy Family: Finding Your Place When Life Isn’t Perfect by Jacob Armstrong. Drama, drama, drama. Into every family a little…or sometimes a lot…of drama must sometimes fall. Take a look at the lives of Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Rebekah, Jacob, and Esau in this video series. As you meet these “messy” families in the stories in Genesis, you’ll recognize a pattern to their lives: they are called, they mess up, and God continues to redeem them. Find out how your “messy” family fits into God’s family and how you are part of God’s plan for the world.  Includes DVD, leader guide, and book. 6 sessions.






Everybody, Always: Becoming Love in a World Full of Setbacks and Difficult People by Bob Goff. In this video study, Bob Goff shares stories from his life that have helped him understand what it truly means to love everybody the way Jesus loves them – without fear, insecurity, or restriction. This begins by loving people right where you are through serving and helping the neighbors God has placed into your world. It means loving people when they mess up and helping them move past the place of shame to acceptance. It continues by being courageous and following where God leads one step at a time. Above all, it means not just agreeing with Jesus but actually doing what Jesus said. Includes DVD, study guide, and book. 5 sessions.






Which Way, Lord? Exploring Your Life’s Purpose in the Journeys of Paul by Rob Fuquay. God created every person with a desire for meaning and purpose. This study intentionally considers the question: “What is the purpose of my life?” It will help us unpack our life alongside the apostle Paul’s life, to find our purpose and passion. Filmed in Turkey, Israel, and Greece. Includes DVD and book. 6 sessions.
